Here and gone.......



I just can't believe how fast it flew by this year....We sent out cards, made our gingerbread house, watched all of the great christmas movies, went to parties, shopped, wrapped, baked cookies, checked the advent calendar, and visited Santa. Of course we went to church on Christmas eve and as tradtion goes....spent Christmas eve with Chip's family and on Christmas day my dad came to spend the day here.



Santa brought a kindle and Uggs...



Beyblades and toys...



...and a t.v. too...



Every year he brings T. the Guiness Book of World of Records and the Ripley's Believe it or not book that Grampsy reads aallll day loooong cover to cover, and fills us on on the craziest of facts.



Another big hit of the day were the origiami books and paper. Cub folded paper for HOURS!!!!! He is addicted!!!!



Then we packed it all up and and headed to Buffalo. Cub got to try out the snowboard Grampsy got him.



Gracie watched it all from the sofa.



The boys cleared off a bit of the pond to skate, slide and get some fresh air. My sister came to spend some days on her way to Dusseldorf, Germany. We got to visit with Aunts, Uncles and cousins...it was a nice visit. But all too quickly we were on our way home and taking down the tree and decorations.....As always there just wasn't enough time to relax and play a few games.....What were the highlights of your holidays???? Happy New Year to all of you.......and best wishes for a happy and healthy 2011!!
